Vaccination Policy


We firmly believe in vaccinations.  Our philosophy has been that it is our role to provide reasoned, scientific information that can help alleviate concerns and ultimately encourage all parents to comply with the recommendations of the medical community.  Unfortunately, there is a small group of parents that insist that they will not vaccinate their children. 

Recent events have caused us to re-evaluate our policy regarding unvaccinated children using our practice for health care.  Around the country, the actions of relatively few parents have put many of the most vulnerable at risk.  Whooping cough and measles are now in full resurgence.  These diseases are life threatening, especially to our youngest patients.  Infants and those undergoing chemotherapy may be unprotected against these diseases.  Additionally, children exposed to diseases such as measles require weeks of quarantine creating a tremendous burden to working parents. In the face of recent outbreaks, we will not allow children who have not vaccinated to remain in our practice. Many of our vaccine-compliant patients have voiced concern about possible exposure in our health care facilities.  It is our duty to provide the safest environment possible to receive health care.

At Pediatric Partners El Paso:

  • We firmly believe in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illness and to save lives.
  • We firmly believe in the safety of our vaccines.
  • We firmly believe that all children should receive all of the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
  • We firmly believe, based on all available literature, evidence, and current studies, that vaccines do not cause autism or other developmental disabilities.
  • All of our own children are vaccinated.

 All of our providers believe that vaccinating your children may be the single most important health-promoting and life-saving intervention that you can perform as parents. 

Effective immediately we will not provide care for families that do not vaccinate their children.

Our policy states:

  1. All children must receive all vaccines recommended by the AAP that are mandated for school entry by the State of Texas.
  2. Parents or caregivers who don’t agree with the Pediatric Partners El Paso vaccine policy will be given a 1 month grace period to find another healthcare facility. Please recognize that by not vaccinating you are putting your child at unnecessary risk for life-threatening illness and disability, even death.

CDC guidelines provide a window for when a specific vaccine should be given.  This allows sufficient flexibility in getting your child properly vaccinated.  We prefer to remain your child’s Pediatrician and will not dismiss any family who is actively working to properly vaccinate their children.  Our staff of doctors and nurses is here to help.  Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
